I have heard some ridiculous names for hula hooping or the hoop in general.  My favorite is from my friend Sean who affectionately refers to the hoop as the HooplahHoo.  I love it : ) I love…

or Mind like a River (terrible, terrible)



I haven’t done this in awhile. My fingers are achy from high stress, pulling against the tendons from overuse. I almost feel like cracking them. A thought that is passing but the other option a relished possibility. See, now I preemptively thought of what is going to be on this page and I froze. My mind went “wait” staring at a sign with an upside down L and the opposite, E. I have delved into a thing far bigger than myself or any. A journey…  

I am considerably bummed

about my lack of a video camera. I have been doing a lot with isolations lately and using my slider glass door as a partial mirror just isn't cutting it. Not only that but I want to put up a video to show my stuff and my progress to my family and on here as well..and I can't. I don't know which of these frustrates me more. My crappy camera just isn't cutting it any more...nor is it functioning properly any more.


I love seeing people's videos and I want to be apart of that.…
 

Dude, I'm just not feelin' it.

Hoop funks are part of the journey, I understand that. But why, for the life of me can I not get myself out of this one.


I love my flow and I have been told I move like a jellyfish in my hoop. That made me so happy, so very happy. But I'm stuck. I'm stuck being a jelly fish and want to expand more. I honestly don't know why I am bitching, all I have to do is get off my arse and go experiment.


I think I may have forgotten that at one point I…

Yes I did feel the need to post a journal entry about accomplishing a trick. A trick I have been seeing done, envied and failed at for nearly 8 months. I got kick starts down yesterday. I was hooping on the main stage at the theatre and just tried it. I didn't expect any result..but I just did it. And then I did it again, and again and again :D Hooping constantly reaffirms that I can do anything. Anything I want :)


I look like a pompous goose when I wiggle it up though :…

Yep, I do want it to become reality. I will be gone till around Tuesday also, but I would like to have it Mondays at 4 to start off and if that isn't the best time to hold it whoever comes to the group can discuss it and change the time if we need to. Give me a call whenever you are free, 208 250 7997. Lets have the first group the Monday after we are both back! Let me know what you think and I'll post it on the Eugene Hoopers discussion :]

Much Love!

Thanks for the compliment on my videos. I'm doing good thank you. I went sailing earlier and it was wonderful! I even hula hooped on the boat! It was fun! And tomorrow I go to Canada! How are you?
I do get a lot of joy out of making hooping tutorials. Thank you for noticing. I find through making hooping tutorials I can utilize many gifts I love, making music, teaching, hula hooping, and making movies, all in one. To top it off, posting videos, I can share these gifts with the world and receive feed back. I get the most joy out of sharing these things with others .

Hey! Thanks! I do feel like I need to work on my flow a lot more though haha :] Yours is awesome too, that fire hoop was sweet! I totally need one and might get one soon.... Anyways, I am not too sure just yet when will be a good time for me, I am still waiting to hear back from this job I was interviewed for, but I should know by Monday. It seems like a lot of the hoopers here in Eugene like Washburn park, I still have to check it out, but it is good for me, but as for a time I just want to see if I am hired before I make a decision... I was thinking maybe Mondays from 4 to whenever... But again, I just need to see if I get hired and what hours I will need to work. Tell me what you think, and much Love!
Hope you are having a good week and give me a call if you would like to hang!

Hey there Lady bird Robin, I met you guy Alex at the fire gathering last week, I'm not sure if I'll be there tonight, but I just wanted to stop by and give ya my number since I have yours. It's 208 250 7997. I was thinking of maybe starting a hoop group sometime within the next few weeks and was wondering what days are best for you. I'm gonna ask the other Eugene hoopers too :] Much Love!

and let me know once you have sent it, so i can prepare the package for delivery. :) My summer has been crazy to say the least. The beginning was filled with Phish, shows and a few festivals. But now i'm broke because i just got in a car accident, but to counter act - i got a new job with more money and better benefits. So all is well that ends well. Plus i just started a hoop business with my friend. SpinArt Hoops. So excited to spread the love all across Long Island, New York.
